Suburban Parties With Some Wow

THE limousines moved quietly along the dark back roads, under canopies of arching branches and leaves, before turning down a dirt drive and stopping at the courtyard of a large 1940's center-hall colonial. And these were just the cars for the staff and performers. When the guests arrived, valets whisked away their Range Rovers and Mercedes sport

  • 1978
    Age 24
    In 1978 Bridges was a Grammy nominee and was the opening act, performing "I Love the Nightlife".
    More Details Hide Details Bridges' self-titled LP, Alicia Bridges, was also rising on the Billboard, Cash Box and Record World charts and the LP remained on the charts for up to 35 weeks. Both the LP and the single release were international successes, and "I Love the Nightlife" went top 40 in the UK and Germany, Spain and other European countries. Bridges' music was especially popular in Japan as well. She received an RIAA Certified Gold Record for the sale of over one million copies of her hit single in the USA, as well as a gold record from Canada. Contrary to the impression created by her success with "I Love the Nightlife", Alicia was primarily a singer of rock, blues and love songs. "I Love the Nightlife" has a definite back beat and organ similar to early 1970s R&B; the original intention was for "I Love the Nightlife" to be an R&B song, but when publishing mogul Bill Lowery first heard the song, he envisioned it as a disco dance tune. Soon after, Jim Burgess created a 12" single remix. Ultimately this mix became a worldwide hit. The song has been featured in several movies, including Love at First Bite, The Last Days of Disco and The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
    Her 1978 hit single "I Love the Nightlife (Disco 'Round)" reached number five on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and also appeared on Billboard's "Hits of the World" chart.
    More Details Hide Details The song was also in the #5 position on the Record World and Cash Box charts. It was also a "crossover" hit, receiving play even on country music stations. The cover of the 1978 self-titled LP features an early skyline picture of Atlanta, Georgia.
